Prize winner of the DAM Architectural Book Award 2017

This sumptuous publication presents the first overview of all the collections and archives held by the Architectural Archive at the Akademie der Künste. After introductory articles by Jeanine Meerapfel, Werner Heegewaldt and Eva-Maria Barkhofen, the individual holdings, which go back to the eighteenth century, are comprehensively presented with biographies of their collectors and a wealth of illustrations.



This richly illustrated book to accompany the exhibition presents for the first time the main sketches, designs, models and projects from the oeuvre of an architect who, above all, is globally recognised as a seminal figure in Protestant church architecture. It documents the phases and diversity of his development from his first buildings in Imperial Germany to visions and projects as expressionism gave way to Neue Sachlichkeit in the Weimar Republic and his commitment to a postwar modernism which, through an imaginative yet restrained approach, significantly influenced the architecture of postwar Germany.

The prize is only open to women visual artists over the age of 40. The exhibition catalogue not only includes work by the prize winner Beate Passow but also by 19 other selected women  artists: Franca Bartholomäi, Tremezza von Brentano, Nezaket Ekici, Mane Hellenthal, Margareta Hesse, Verena Kyselka, Ute Lindner, Anja Luithle, Alice Musiol, Eva von PlatenHallermund, Sibylle Prange, Vera Röhm, Christine Rusche, Heike Ruschmeyer, Corinna Schnitt, Uta Schotten, Rose Stach, Melanie Wiora, Uta Zaumseil.
